“Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.” —Val Saintsbury
Whether it’s a routine check-up or a major injury, nurses are always one of the first faces you see, in times of health needs. Nurses are truly the backbone of not only the medical field but of this county. Approximately 3 million nurses working today make up the majority of the U.S. healthcare industry and are the largest single profession within the field, and consistently ranked the most trusted profession in America year after year.
As some may know as of 2020, Nurses week was officially extended into Nurse Month for the entirety of May. National Nurses month focuses on weekly themes of self-care, recognition, professional development, and community engagement. But what can we as a community do to advocate for nurses year around?
The pandemic has made the burn-out nurses often face more self-evident. The way we can advocate for nurses is to simply take necessary steps in keeping ourselves healthy. Ways we can do this is by staying on top of our immunizations, and by making good health choices overall. Taking these small measures can help ensure happier and healthier communities.
Most importantly we at Immuware would like to honor each and every nurse for doing what they do to make this world a better place, one patient at a time. Thank you for showing us that the spirit of care, compassion, and comfort indeed remains strong.
